New Staff In Place At Mottram Hall

MOTTRAM Hall will go to any lengths to secure the staff members it feels will add to its reputation for first-class service on and off the golf course, with its latest recruit being sourced from Asia.

New golf operations manager Lee Marshall, 37, who hails originally from Chapel-en-le-Frith, brings a wealth of experience from foreign shores.

Apart from a stint as operations manager at a golf club in Tallinn, Estonia, between 2013 and 2014, he has spent his career as a PGA professional in the Far East, working in China and Vietnam.

He began his foreign odyssey in 2006 when he took up the post of head pro at Jinji Lake International GC, in Suzhou, China, and, two years later, moved to the highly regarded Montgomerie Links Vietnam, in Da Nang, also as head professional.

Roles as director of golf at Lan Hai International, in Shanghai, and Vinpearl Golf Clubs in Vietnam, came either side of his stint in Tallinn, and, immediately before he took up his latest position, he was director of golf at the Cam Ranh Links, in Vietnam, which is scheduled to open in 2018.

Alex and Lee


Marshall is joined at Mottram Hall – more than 6,000 miles away from his last job – by 23-year-old, second year PGA trainee Alex Elliott, who has taken on the role of golf operations assistant, and who also boasts foreign climes on his CV.

Having taken up golf at the tender age of five, Elliott was always destined to carve out a career in the sport and the former junior captain of Bramhall GC started with an internship at Boavista Golf, in Portugal, before taking on a role as junior golf coach at Lymm GC, in Cheshire.

PGA assistant professional positions followed at Bramhall GC and Ashton in Makerfield GC, in Wigan, before the Stockport-born Elliott moved even closer to home in his latest position at Mottram Hall.

Head of golf Robert Warrener is delighted to be able to welcome the pair to Mottram Hall and said: "I’m sure Lee and Alex will prove to be very popular staff with both members and guests.

"They’re both very engaging people who are passionate about golf and we are pleased to be able to add them to our team as we prepare for 2018 and the new challenges that will bring."
